./sysutils/sysbuild, Automates builds of NetBSD and manages source trees

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.7nb2, Package name: sysbuild-2.7nb2, Maintainer: jmmv

sysbuild is a tool to automate the maintenance of the NetBSD sources and
the build of releases by means of a single command and a configuration
file that tells sysbuild what to do.

Since NetBSD 1.6 (released in September 2002), the source tree has included
a very flexible script (build.sh) to build a full NetBSD release for the
current platform or to cross-build for any of the supported platforms.

The flipside of the flexibility is that the script is inconvenient to use
on a daily basis because of the myriad of options it takes. Furthermore,
managing the source trees that make up NetBSD is not in the scope of
build.sh: the user must fetch these trees and keep them up to date by hand.

While these details are all fine on their own, rebuilding NetBSD frequently
(to keep a system up to date, or just for development tasks) is convoluted.
Developers and users usually find themselves writing their own wrapper
scripts over build.sh to simplify their daily tasks.

sysbuild extends build.sh by adding support for configuration files and
source tree management, allowing NetBSD rebuilds with a single and simple
command. Make sure to check the sysbuild-user package for a way to
trivially set up periodic NetBSD rebuilds under an dedicated, unprivileged

Fix path to sysbuild in sysbuild4cron.

This is a pull-up of upstream 1eb74a64b213d0e4e6a98955169fae76b1c563e0
which was committed on 2014-07-01 but never checked in here (nor I have
released another distfile yet).

Bump PKGREVISION to 2 for this fix.
